A VS8 "Find in Files" search returned multiple entries for the same file, same line.
There is a large .h with shared memory variables, and 3 .cpp files that contain the searched for variable name. The entire Solution has several thousand files.
Search results show:
The .h 4 times (same file, same line #)
Each of the .cpp files several times (different lines # that have the variable)
The .h 3 more times.
I suspect that the multiple .h entries are due to the .h being included in the 3 .cpp files but it sure looks strange.

This is just a little nit noid thing but if anyone has an answer I'd like to hear it. Thanks, Bob Ritter, Pensacola, FL
